    Does anyone know what kind of bantam this is? It’s hard to get s picture of them not being held so these will have to do!

    Looks like a sebright or old English bantam to me but I’m not an expert

    Definitely not a Sebright - the feathering, tail and coloring are too far off. I'd say game bantam, but whether Old English or Modern is hard to tell without a good body profile picture. If your youngster is a hatchery chick, it' could be either, as many of OEGBs and MGBs are almost the same thing, anymore. Either way, they're pretty, personable little birds. Next to my Nankins, OEGBs are probably my favorites!

    We just grabbed a few bantams at Tractor Supply so definitely hatchery. Tried to get a profile shot but of course head turned at the last second BF98B251-2B5F-4331-A83F-68C34AA9788D.jpeg

    I'd say OEGB. They have a lot of personality - you'll enjoy them!
